Learning The Healing Arts

Discover the foundation of all Ayurveda Spa Therapies. During our Ayurvedic Massage and Bliss Therapy training, you will learn how to perform one and two-person Ayurvedic massage (Abhyanga) and learn how to administer Shirodhara and Svedana (herbal steam). These exquisite therapies are deeply relaxing and nourishing to the body and mind. 

Our Therapies

Abhyanga

This traditional full-body Ayurvedic massage reduces stress, blood pressure, anxiety and muscle aches and pains.  This therapy is beneficial to the nervous and immune systems and is particularly good for anxiety, stress, Parkinson’s disease, heart palpitations, chronic fatigue and general toning.

Marma

Using the 107 energy points on the body, this treatment restores the proper flow of energy (prana) through the entire body and eases specific conditions while enhancing the natural ability of the body to heal. Practitioners work with prana & massage marma points with essential oils. 

Pinda Svedana

Utilizing warm pindas filled with rice or herbs soaked in medicated oil. When applied to the whole body it is good for neuromuscular and skeletal disorders. Applied to specific areas of the body experiencing pain or discomfort it supports healing. 

Shirodhara

Specifically focused on balancing and stabilizing the mind, taking you on a journey deep within. Good for treatment of mental and emotional conditions such as insomnia, hormonal imbalances, disorders of the nervous system, stress and anxiety.

Svedana

This treatment aids in the elimination of toxins. Beneficial for stiffness, coughs, pain in the ears, neck or head, edema and promotes deep relaxation. An oil application precedes this steam, or it may be added after a massage or body therapy.

Ayurvedic Facial

This lovely facial provides a soothing and exfoliating massage that nurtures the skin. Special energetic points on the face and scalp are massaged to calm the activity of the mind, creating a state of peace & tranquility. 

Chakra Dough Basti

Dough is shaped and used to contain warm herbal oils on special parts of the body, allowing the oil’s medicinal properties to penetrate deeply into that part of the body. Common areas include the low back, eyes and heart. 

Nasya

This treatment transitions between a relaxing facial massage using marma points of the head, face and neck and heat therapy. It is followed by nasal administration of herbalized oils to clean and purify the sinuses. 

Shanti Komala Basti

An medicated herbal oil or tea decoction enema infused with Ayurvedic herbs that gently tonifies the colon. This is one of the main therapies of panchakarma and is used to remove excess vata in the body. 

Karna Purna

Following a gentle massage of the ear, warm, herbalized oil fills the ear canal to soothe irritation, reduce earaches and tonify the tissue. Karna purna is helpful during times of congestion and when suffering from allergies.

Garashana

This invigorating therapy utilizes quick moving friction strokes performed with raw silk gloves to cleanse and exfoliate the skin. It is followed by a light oil massage with a focus on the shoulders, neck and feet.
